Added DiffLines:

** The Hero and Gemma's Wedding Photo also counts. It shows the Hero and Gemma in wedding attire, with Sandy in front of them along with a proudly smiling Dunstan and a teary-eyed Amber to the side, with Erik and Serena acting as the best man and maid of honor respectively, along with Veronica as the flower girl, while Jade [[FunnyBackgroundEvent catches Rab hiding one of his playboy magazines]] and Sylvando showers the newlyweds with confetti. [[spoiler: Also in attendance are King Carnelian and Sir Hendrik, with Heartwarming smiles on their faces, along with Erik's sister Mia, who seems to be highly amused by the whole ceremony. To top it all off, in the back with proud smiles on their faces, are the ghosts of King Irwin, Queen Eleanor, and Chalky.]]


* Jade's desire to atone for her self-perceived [[MyGreatestFailure past failure to protect the Luminary as a child]] is enough for her to -- without a moment's hesitation -- leap off a cliff after the Luminary in an attempt to break his fall. This becomes even more poignant when some later optional dialogues reveal that Jade has a fear of heights.

* Serena's ImportantHaircut is this when you remember the custom Arborians have when a villager dies -- they offer up a lock of hair to help guide the lost soul to Yggdrasil. [[spoiler:She was ''that'' close to her twin to chop that much off, and chances are Veronica would have done the same if the roles were reversed.]]
